New hostel on the Albanian side of Lake Ohrid, in a city called Pogradec.
The backpackers hostel is made by a traveler for travelers.
I'm looking for one or two volunteers to help me run my new backpackers hostel.
Work will include: Check Ins/Check Outs, preparing breakfast, basic cleaning, making beds, and other general hostel jobs.
Food and accommodation will be provided in return for the hours of work you do.
I would prefer volunteers staying long term, minimum a month.

A little about me, Matt the owner of the hostel.

I'm originally from Sweden. For the past 12 years I have been working and traveling around Europe, Morocco and some parts of the east. In October 2013 I decided to go on a little hitchhiking/volunteering adventure without any money. I traveled money less for for over a year and a half, volunteering on farms, wild life rescue centers and in hostels. So I know what its like to be a volunteer, as I have done many volunteering hours in various places myself. After a year and a half doing this, the fun of the money less adventure kind of went away and it was time to find a new adventure so I decided to take over this hostel.


Cooking / shopping
General Maintenance
Animal care
Helping with Tourists
Art project
Help with Computers / internet

The hostel is pretty new only a few weeks old, have a ton of projects that needs to be done.

Some of the ongoing projects are:

- Arts and Painting

- Maintenance Jobs

- Construction/Carpentry Jobs

Most of these projects I do myself, except for the art/painting stuff. If you can paint please contact me as I could use your help.

Also, a while ago me and a friend found 4 kittens next to the road just outside the city. They had been abandoned by some less nice person only a week old, so I had to adopt them. I do need some help raising them for the next few months as it is a daunting task doing it by myself.

Bed in a separate staff room.
